Final performances in Mullady Theatre
Loyola’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts (DFPA) will run A Streetcar Named Desire from April 13-22 on the Lake Shore Campus. Thursday through Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees begin at 2 p.m. in the Kathleen Mullady Memorial Theatre. This will be the final production held in the famed theatre, as the DFPA’s theatre department will move to new digs in Mundelein Center next fall.
Set in the steamy streets of New Orleans, Tennessee Williams’s drama offers an atmospheric portrait of desperation, deception, and sexual chemistry. When aging southern belle Blanche Dubois comes to the French Quarter to live with her sister, Stella, she gets caught in a dangerous web that includes Stella’s husband, Stanley Kowalski. Physically and emotionally compelling, he dominates his wife and clashes with Blanche over the sisters’ inheritance. While running from her own troubled past, Blanche fails to accept that she’s lost everything in this Pulitzer Prize-winning portrait of complex characters in a moment of tragic flux.
